WAH-WAH x KLEENEX LiLiPUT
*Pre-orders ship mid-August 2022
When defining the ‘look’ of punk, the history books would lead you to believe it’s all unwell looking men in leather jackets and spiky hair being rude. Then there’s Kleenex / LiLiPUT. On the cover of their ‘First Songs’ compilation issued by Kill Rock Stars, rather than posturing in the punk uniform, the group is pictured showing off some nifty costumes and toy swords they’ve made themselves with some bits of cardboard. This is the essence of Kleenex’s music and their take on punk; creative, resourceful and uninterested in following anyone’s blueprint.
WAH-WAH is honoured to reinterpret the original artwork from Kleenex/LiLiPUT’s second single from 1979, “Ü / You”. The graphic pacman-esque artwork (before pacman was a thing) is by Peter Fischli, who regularly collaborated with the band on the design of album covers and posters.
Details: 100% superfine merino wool. Knitted in China with Australian superfine merino wool.
Care: Turn your wool garment inside out, then hand wash in clean, lukewarm water, approximately 30°C, using a mild and gentle detergent. Allow to soak for a period of 10 minutes before rinsing thoroughly firstly in lukewarm water, then finally in cold water. Dry flat in shade. Do not tumble dry. Warm iron. Dry Cleanable.
Sophie and Robbie are both wearing a size medium.
WAH-WAH sizing is unisex and the measurements above reflect the garment measurements in cm. We recommend measuring from underarm to underarm of a jumper (sweater) that you like the fit of, and choosing the nearest corresponding size. Keep in mind that the knitted superfine merino wool is pretty stretchy and forgiving, so there is a bit of leeway with sizing. For more info, check out the sizing gallery HERE.
